What will it take, how many spills, how many more lies from Enbridge before Christy Clark stands up for British Columbia...
I have waited patiently for Adrian Dix to come out strong against Enbridge, maybe it was the Red Deer spill that finally prompted him to draw a line in the sand, whatever the reason his hard stance will vault him into the premier`s chair, it will also end Harper`s reign of terror..
As Premier Christy Clark waffles and wavers on the proposed Enbridge pipeline, NDP leader Adrian Dix has been ramping up his opposition to the megaproject.
Now — in the aftermath of a major oil-pipeline rupture in Alberta — Dix is taking his fight against the Enbridge project and kicking it up another notch.
Dix has assembled a legal team to review the province’s options in advance of next year’s election.
What if the pipeline passes its current environmental review and gets the official green light from Ottawa? What if it all happens on Dix’s watch, if he becomes premier next year?
Would a Dix government be willing to keep fighting the project and perhaps try to stop it?
“Not only do I not rule it out, but we are already actively researching those questions,” Dix told me in an interview.
